VIDEO: 4 in Custody After Ambush Attack on St. Louis Officer

The suspected gunman in a surprise attack that wounded a city police sergeant this week was in custody Thursday, along with three men believed to have been with him.

Police arrested Dale Wolford, 24, on Thursday morning. He is accused of shooting the sergeant, 39, who was off-duty but in full police uniform, working a security job near Maryland and Euclid avenues in the Central West End. A bullet-resistant vest stopped a slug from penetrating the officer’s torso.

Wolford was charged with assault on a law enforcement officer, two counts of armed criminal action and discharging a firearm at a vehicle, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

He was apprehended in the 2200 block of Yale Avenue in Maplewood and taken to St. Louis police headquarters for booking. He had a bloody scrape along the side of his face, which police said occurred when he resisted arrest. A police source said that during the arrest Wolford had reached for an officer’s gun and was subdued with a Taser.

I would bet you that he was one of those responsible for the rioting in Ferguson.
